Common Ground in a Liquid City: A Visual Aid!

By kate | September 14, 2011

OK, this is one of the best things I have seen this week. Internet, why didn’t you show this to me sooner?!

This is a visual representation of some of the major themes of Matt Hern’s Common Ground in a Liquid City, which we published last year, and which is still one of my favorite books AK’s released in the past several years. This giant chart was drawn by Colleen Stevenson, an artist and designer who “create[s] large wall charts using colour and visual metaphors to clarify ideas and simplify concepts during conversations and presentations.” This chart was made during a talk Matt gave in Victoria, BC last year, and it’s kind of amazing!

You can find a high-rez version over at Colleen’s website, plus samples of her other work. I wonder if she’d do one for David Graeber’s new Debt book? Cause that would be equally awesome …

PS: Anybody in the Baltimore area out there? Be sure to check out Matt Hern at the Baltimore Book Festival on September 25, speaking with Floodlines author Jordan Flaherty and Baltimore housing rights activist and historian Marisela Gomez. More info at:
